in closing
In Closing…
  • Sanctification is that sovereign act of God whereby He sets apart a person, a place, or an object for Himself in order that He might accomplish His purpose in the world by means of that person, place, or object
  • There are aspects that are the responsibility of God and aspects that are our responsibility
  • We must be diligent not to lose our sanctification
  • The Master Plan of Salvation covers repentance, complete removal of our sins, justification and sanctification
in closing28
In Closing…
  • Unless we understand Sanctification in light of Justification we will become inflated by our own self–righteousness, expecting payment for work done in our own name, as if this is how we attain salvation.
  • If we confuse Sanctification with Justification we will become moralists
    • I’m better than you because I don’t drink
  • If we neglect Justification for Sanctification we will become relativists
    • It doesn’t matter what is true/right as long as I’m good to others.
